I’m sidestepping the Messy Pretzel and moving on to the French Loaf:
Fresh from the bakery (albeit with fur) and all soft and warm.
Sometimes the loaf has a tail:
Kitty enjoys imitating a loaf of bread. See how she’s smiling?
Kitty: ” I’m not smiling. Please leave me alone. Trying to sleep here!”
Maybe we should call her the Grumpy French Loaf.
